- In this movie we'll explore some ways…to import and sync up audio clips to our timeline.…We'll start with a bit of organization.…A little now will pay off big later,…so let's make some tracks,…and we'll name them and color code them.…To make a new track, you can select…any track in the timeline…and then the new track will appear below it,…so I'll click on music to select that track.…You can select a track just by clicking…on the top, left corner of any track,…and then I'll go up to Multitrack, Track,…and I add a stereo audio track.…
There's a good quick key command for this,…which is option A for mac,…and that would be alt A for Windows machines,…and I'm going to add a stereo audio track here…because most of the sound effects…I will be adding to my timeline…are, indeed, stereo files.…Although, you might find some…sound effects might be monofiles,…and you can see here that Audition…also allows for 5.1 surround audio tracks,…so let's add one stereo audio track,…and you can see it showed up,…and it's called Track 1 just by default,…
This course is based on a 30-second graphics project, which is used to demonstrate concepts ranging from sound selection and spotting to sound creation and manipulation. Along the way, author Scott Hirsch provides an in-depth look at Audition's Multitrack and Waveform Editors, as well as the process of round-tripping a project to Premiere Pro. Plus, he'll show how to create your own riveting sound effects from scratch and start building a library you can use for future projects.
